Protestation of Integrity and Prayer for Protection.
A Psalm of David.
26 [a]Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the Lord[b]without wavering. 2 Examine me, O Lord, and try me; Test my [c]mind and my heart. 3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your [d]truth. 4 I do not sit with [e]deceitful men, Nor will I go with [f]pretenders. 5 I hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked. 6 I shall wash my hands in innocence, And I will go about Your altar, O Lord, 7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your [g]wonders.
8 O Lord, I love the habitation of Your house And the place [h]where Your glory dwells. 9 Do not [i]take my soul away along with sinners, Nor my life with men of bloodshed, 10 In whose hands is a wicked scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes. 11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; Redeem me, and be gracious to me. 12 My foot stands on a level place; In the congregations I shall bless the Lord.
